My Writing Palace

I read a post this morning by another blogger in which she mentioned creating a writing palace for her to blog in. Which got me thinking about my own blogging palace, an abandoned castle in an spare room. I spent plenty of time setting up, with a used desk, my computer, year round Halloween decorations, and it looks awesome.

But I hardly spend any time in it. It turns out I’d rather be writing in the living room, tapping out a post on my phone while my husband watches TV. At a certain point it started to hurt my hands, so he got me a laptop for my birthday.

If I’m really honest, my writing palace is all over the place. The parking garage at work when I beat traffic and get to the office early, the passenger seat in my husband’s jeep, the walking trail in my neighborhood. I’ve stuffed notebooks in my purse, my nightstand, and left one on the end table in my living room.

However, my abandoned castle doesn’t go to complete waste. The room it’s in doubles as my husband’s home office, so on my day’s off, I wind up writing in there while he works.

Any one else have an abandoned writing palace?
